If you actually took a minute to ponder how much work goes into cooking the average Thanksgiving dinner, your head would probably explode.

Unless you weasel out and buy a pre-made dinner from your local grocery chain, there’s probably dozens of hours in the prep and cooking of the turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables, hors d'oeuvres, and various pies served up post-meal.

In that regard, cooking a turkey dinner is a lot like building a race car for World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) competition, minus the ambient music.

Don’t believe me? Check out the time-lapse build of the WTCC Honda S2000 in the video below and tell me you can’t spot the turkey prep, the mashing of the potatoes, the dicing of the apples for pie, and so on. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

We have no idea why there’s a rifle in the window, either, but we’ll presume it’s for bagging a fresh turkey for the post-build celebration. In the mean time, enjoy the video as a temporary alternative to football, and try not to lapse into a tryptophan-and-ambient-music-induced coma.

There’s still desert to be had, and that apple pie was a lot of work.
